explaining his horrific actions. but lieutenant paul vance said clues to the possible motive have been recovered in multiple searches. >> did produce some very-- a very good evidence in this investigation, that our investigators will be able to use and hopefully painting the complete picture as to how and more importantly why this occurred. >> reporter: now, we have to say it's not clear why at this hour lanza targeted that elementary school. there were early reports yesterday indicating the mother naiive a teacher there, perhaps an aide at sandy hook. police have found no evidence she had any obvious connection to the school. and one more thing, jim. police now are checking on a different report that maybe adam lanza was involved in an argument with staffers at the school the day before the shooting, but i have to emphasize they have not yet confirmed that. jim. >> axelrod: bob orr in washington, thank you. senior correspondent john miller has been talking to his law enforcement source. he joins me now for more. john, are you hearing anything about this altercation? >> reporter: yeah,
with different eyes and new to the area at how to continue to build and cultivate the brei vance si of jewish landscape here in the bay area, what do you hope for? >> i liked what they were saying about listening to the people. this is a time in our -- in our lives that we really have to build a community from a grass roots kind of way. it is that community building type formula. long gone are the days of when you and i were children where the rabbi stood up on a high pulpit and told people what to believe and how to -- how to believe. we live in a much more eclectic and a kind of time. so it requires active liste compassion and understanding of how people live and where they're living. and use the resources available, which there are many here in the san francisco bay area to reach out and attend to those people where they are, and realize that as we do, they will then come in as well. so i think it starts as a glass roots kind of project. and of course using the frame work of jewish community life which is historic. but if i can just add one thing and i don't want to take too much time but
. i spoke at 7:00 to lieutenant vance who is the lead spokesman for the lead police here, and they are the lead investigators on the scene, and you can imagine with the number of fa l fatalities here and the number of victims here and extraordinarily complicated investigation is under way. first, you have the scene at the home of the mother of the shooter, and that is one scene. and then the massive scene at the school. although, it did take place in one area of the school, and in two different rooms, and through the night, we know that the coroner's team was on the scene. late last night we saw a parade of vehicles leaving there including four cars who had priests in it, and members of the religious community coming together to try to help these grieving families. all of the families of the victims have been notified. what we were expecting here this morning is to get a list of those victims. of course sh, p many of them already known to the community, because in this close-knit town people know each other, and people have spoken among themselves, and many of them, of c
: and that didn't happen. state police lieutenant paul vance says no responding officer fired their weapons at the scene. brown says even that can have an impact on them. >> that leaves them with a helpless feeling and makes them second guess some what have they had done and that's very i do deal with. very difficult to deal with. >> police are also this morning searching for a woman they say pushed a man to his death on a new york train flat form that happened yesterday evening. witnesses say the woman was pacing on the train platform talking to her is of before she sat on the bench. when the train pulled up to the station she got up and push the man on tracks and ran awaych he was pinned in by the second car. police are investigating the case. >> five things a know on this friday morning they deals audiences and this weekend you can catch the world famous harlem globetrotters first mariner arena in baltimore. globetrotters have a write your own rules world tour first displayed at the arena on saturday. baltimore native hall will be one of the newest players joining the team. you can see h

of evidence to help explain the how and why this occurred. here is a little bit from lieutenant paul vance as to how the shooter may have gotten into the building. >> we have established the point of entry. it was, i can tell you it's believed he was not voluntarily let into the school at all. that he forced his way into the school. >> reporter: and there is some evidence, reports out that lanza may have had some sort of altercation at the school in the days before the shooting occurred. we spoke with lieutenant paul vance and he has not confirmed so we don't have any knowledge for certain that lanza had been in the school days before the shooting, but all of these things are looked into and authorities are working to find everything out. >> one person that might be able to shed light on what may have happened during the course of this massacre, one survivor, a female survivor, a woman, police say they're speaking with her and that what she's saying will be involumable to figure out what happened inside the walls of the school. >> they're waiting to hear more from her. molly line with mor
before she died. i want to bring in lieutenant paul vance with the connecticut state police. he's the lead spokes man, you've seen him speaking many times. it's been a very difficult job to have to update the world on what he knows. he joins me on the phone now with the latest. i appreciate it, we all do because everyone wants to understand what happened here. we have confirmed as you just heard, that nancy lanza was away in the days before the shooting. what can you tell us about her relationship with her son? >> i think what's important is to make sure that everyone understands that our investigators, our state police detectives have to take every piece of information and confirm it. ensure that it's totally accurate, and totally pristine and without error before we can come out publicly and state it. therefore, we haven't really come out and stated anything too too much relative to the relationship with the shooter, prior to the catastrophe that happened at the school. >> all right and i understand that. we don't want you to rush it, then have to change what you say, so i do
